3 May 2016: Another author for Case of the Week discussions needed

We are looking for a second author to write the Case of the Week discussions, so we can get ahead by several weeks, and are covered when one author goes on leave or has a busy period.  You must be a staff pathologist and a good writer.  The advantages are getting known by the 6000+ subscribers to this feature, as well as $75 per case discussion.  The initial time commitment is 2-3 hours per week.  When we are caught up, it will be less.  If interested, contact Dr. Pernick at NatPernick@gmail.com, and attach your CV and a writing sample.  

3 May 2016: Record number of total page views in April 2015

In April, we had 2,799,258 page views, a new record.  Thanks again for making us the "go to" site for pathology information. You can see our other statistics here: http://www.pathologyoutlines.com/monthlystats.php
